GARDEN // EXOTIC // NAPOLEON // CALM
A hotel room in Paris with windows opening onto a garden full of white hortensias, ivy and even a Judas tree, which flowers in the spring and turns everything pink... Very rare!
This room inspires you to dream of faraway places. With its large tapestry with lotus flowers against a dark burgundy background, its zebra-striped carpet in deep purple and beige, its armchairs, and original (!) Napoleon III fireplace, this room is a delightful blend of the exotic and the classic. The bedside tables and desk in sculpted wood add a traditional touch to this bold mix of styles, but the most appealing feature is the tall window overlooking the fountain in the garden. When we opened the windows, we fell in love with the lovely old handles and traditional wood frames.
The bathroom also has an exotic feel to it, with the sink sunken in turquoise volcanic stone and toiletry products by Gemology. It also has a nice, large window overlooking the garden.
A ritzy RESIDENTIAL neighborhood! Silver spoon-fed youth and WELL-MANNERED grandparents walk their Labradors in the tree-lined side streets of this residential area where tourists rarely venture.
The local: Tod's shoes on the feet, a silk Hermès scarf around the neck.
